Abstract:

Methylammonium perchlorate has been characterized to assess its suitability as an ingredient for propellants and explosives. Details of its preparation and of methods for determining its purity are described. Its thermal stability was investigated by differential thermal analysis and thermogravimetric analysis. Its sensitivity to impact, friction, flash and flame were determined. The solubility, pH, hygroscopicity and infrared spectra were also examined. A literature survey of its uses as an ingredient in explosives and propellants is included. Author
